Just a 'headsup' for you power users... 

Microsoft has updated PowerToys to 0.62 and has added three new tools to the existing ones:

  • New utility: Screen Ruler is a quick and easy way to measure pixels on your screen.
  • New utility: Quick Accent is an easy way to write letters with accents.
  • New utility: Text Extractor works like Snipping Tool, but copies the text out of the selected region using OCR and puts it on the clipboard.
  • PowerToy Run ships with a new Plugin letting you search in past query results.


There are known issues with the PowerToys, and they're listed in the linked Neowin article (above):
